Texas HIV Medication Program
The Texas HIV Medication Program (THMP) provides medications for the treatment of HIV and its related complications for low-income Texans. To qualify for medications, potential clients who meet eligibility criteria complete an application for assistance. Once approved, a client receives medications at an assigned pharmacy in their community.
To learn more about the THMP and find out if you are eligible, see the Frequently Asked Questions. You can apply for the program by downloading and completing the client application. Be sure and review the specific “application instructions” when completing the application. The application and its instructions are located on the THMP document page. If you have more questions or need assistance completing your application, call the THMP toll free at 800-255-1090.
The THMP is the official AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) for the State of Texas. The THMP has been in existence since 1987 and provides medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of illnesses caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other opportunistic infections in HIV-infected individuals as prescribed by their doctor. THMP also operates the Texas HIV State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program (SPAP) which helps HIV-positive individuals that do not qualify for the full Low-Income Subsidy (extra help) with their out-of-pocket costs associated with Medicare Part D prescription drug plans, including co-payments, deductibles, coinsurance, and during the coverage gap (the "donut hole").
New Dosages of Three Medications Used To Treat HIV in Infants and Children Have Been Approved for Addition to the THMP Formulary
New dosages of three medications used to treat HIV in infants and children have been approved by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Commissioner of Health for addition to the Texas HIV Medication Program (THMP) AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) Formulary:
DSHS was able to estimate the fiscal impact of this change with reasonable certainty based on current data related to pediatric client loads and medications usage. The estimated fiscal impact of this change is minimal, with the possibility of a resulting positive fiscal impact when compared with maintaining only the current pediatric options. Consequently, DSHS is able to support these additions within existing monies and has approved adding these pediatric medications to the formulary.
The THMP formulary has been updated.
Please submit a new THMP Medical Certification Form (MCF) for any infants and children in need of these new medication doses.
Thanks to the Medication Advisory Committee for recommending these changes.
A medication has been added to the THMP Formulary:
The Medical Certification Form and THMP Formulary have been updated. Both can be found on the THMP documents page.
Program applications, guidelines, and formulary listings are available on the THMP document page.
